Amazing bbq and even more amazing support

I've owned the classic 3 for two years, and I absolutely love it. The more I cook with it, the more I appreciate all it can achieve. And the couple times I've had issues, the support team has gone above and beyond to help me out. I highly recommend it

Versatility

Very versatile grill. In the past 3 weeks we have grilled salmon, tuna steaks, smoked chicken and ribs, cooked burgers and used the Do Joe for pizzas. Looking forward to using the JoeTisserie.

Don't hesitate...you'll love this grill!

LOVE this grill! Importantly, it comes with so many useful attachments that you won't need to buy a bunch of accessories to get started...take that into account when comparing price with other Kamado grills. I am new to Kamado cooking, but the learning curve is not too bad, especially with all the YouTube videos available. One suggestion is to keep a Kamado cooking journal...if you are like me, you won't remember exactly how you did it that time that the ribs came out perfectly! I am adding to my favorite recipes week by week. Don't hesitate, you'll love it!

Fantastic grill quality. Got the joetisserie and made the best chicken I've ever made, and the dojoe and made some of the best pizza I've ever had! Can't wait to try smoking some meats soon!

My only regret is not buying the bigger one...

I have had this product since January 2021. I wish I had bought the bigger one (24") even though it is just my wife and I. However, when my neighbors see me firing it up...well for some reason they all show up at my house. Maybe it's the cocktails, the food or the pool but nonetheless, my house becomes the party spot even if it just snack. I did a "clean burn" the other night as the inside was a little grody as I live in Florida where there is high humidity all the time. The interior thermometer said it was 900 degrees interior and the exterior was 530 degrees which the manufacturer does not recommend, but the grill held up without a problem and the interior became almost original with a light dusting with a nylon brush and my cordless shop vac. I told my wife that I wanted to buy the bigger one for our second home in which she said, "Why are you asking, you know I won't say no to that." I have had to use the warranty claim twice and had superb experiences on both occasions. Save yourself the headache and don't buy a BGE, the value is hands down with KamadoJoe.

Kamado Joe Classic III - Awesome unit

Unit came packaged well, easy to assemble (you will need a friend to help move) and easy to use. Heavy duty metal on all grates, charcoal basket and side shelves. Smoked and grilled food are really moist and the slow roller makes for a nice smoke to food.

The Skinny:

  • New SloRoller insert blasts food with smoky flavor
  • Updated 3 tier divide and conquer cooking system
  • Free accessory package included with every Kamado Joe
  • Fastest growing kamado brand
  • Excellent warranty

Things We Love

Kamado Joe is the fastest growing brand in the Kamado industry for a reason. Introducing innovation with each new model, the kamado style cookers keep getting better and better. The Kamado Joe Classic III and Big Joe III are no exception. With awesome new features like an updated cooking system, SloRoller hyperbolic chamber, and an easy-to-use Airlift hinge, these smokers infuse rich, smoky flavor to just about any food!

Updated Divide & Conquer Flexible Cooking System

Kamado Joe is famous for their patented Divide & Conquer Flexible Cooking System. It’s an impressive multi-level cooking rack design that allows you to cook foods at different temperatures, at the same time. You can also create different heat zones in the kamado with Kamado Joe's half-moon shaped heat deflector plates. The plates partially block off heat to provide both direct & indirect heat from the open flame. For example, you could cook veggies on the upper level of the cooking rack, with the heat deflector blocking direct heat from the charcoal, while a steak gets a nice sear on one of the lower levels above the open flame.

The Kamado Joe Classic III and Big Joe III has a new and improved 3-tiered split rack. With this new addition, you can opt for 6 half-moon split cooking grids with 2 half-moon split heat deflector plates, or 4 half-moon split cooking grids and the SloRoller insert. Each level can span the entire surface of the smoker, or only half. Designed for flexibility, you can configure the grates to work however you need them too – the options are abundant!

You can also use a charcoal basket with the divider. This makes it really easy to separate leftover charcoal from ash. The divider, when combined with a split heat deflector plate, allows for direct heat on one side and indirect heat on the other side. It should be noted that the Kamado Joe Classic III and Big Joe III come with a divided charcoal basket, a 3 tiered flexible cooking rack, 1 accessory rack, 2 half-moon split cooking grids, 2 half-moon split heat deflector plates and the SloRoller insert. To get the full functionality of the divide and conquer system, 4 additional half-moon split cooking grids and 2 additional accessory racks can be purchased seperately.

Air-Lift Hinge

The new air lift hinge makes lifting the lid of the Kamado Joe III’s easier than ever before. The updated hinge features a single spring-loaded counterbalance mechanism that provides an ultra-light feel when opening the domed lid. It decreases the weight of the lid by 96%! Not only does this make lifting easier, but it also lowers the chance of the lid being broken or cracked by slamming down.

Great Customer Service

Kamado Joe really caters to their customers by providing excellent customer service. Any time you have an issue, the Kamado Joe team will work tirelessly to help you figure it out and get the issue resolved. They also offer a great warranty! Ceramic parts come with a lifetime warranty. Metal and cast iron parts are covered for 5 years. Ceramic plates are covered for 3 years, and fiberglass gaskets are covered for one year.

Great Accessories

While the Kamado Joe Classic and Big Joe III come with everything you need to get grilling right away, including an ash tool, grate lifter, 3-tiered cooking rack, 1 accessory rack, 2 half-moon cooking grids, 2 half-moon heat deflector plates, SloRoller insert, powder coated side shelves, slide out ash drawer and a divided charcoal basket, they also offer some awesome accessories to enhance your grilling or smoking experience. Get the most out of your grill with optional accessories like the iKamand Temperature Controller. The DōJoe Pizza Oven Attachment features a distinct wedge-shaped design to maintain a steady temperature and make the perfect pizza. The Joetisserie can transform your kamado into a rotisserie. It can turn up to 50 pounds of chicken, pork loin, prime rib, or any kind of meat. It’s easy to install and can really amp up any party!

Things to Consider

The SloRoller is built for low and slow cooking. It shouldn’t be operated above 500F, as the Teflon coating can break down if it gets too hot. Make sure to refer to your owner’s manual on proper use of your grill and accessories.

When will my item arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3-5 business days. While UPS and FedEx are our carriers for smaller items, be aware that larger items and orders are shipped via freight. The freight process is a bit more complicated than what we’ve all come to expect for small parcels, so it’s important that you’re prepared and understand what’s required of you well before delivery day.

  • Most freight products ship on a pallet
  • Some carriers will call to schedule a delivery window, while others will deliver the shipment to a reasonably accessible location closest to your residence (their goal is to deliver as near a garage door as they can).
  • We’ll specify which process you can expect in your shipping confirmation email.

For carriers that schedule delivery appointments:

Carriers that schedule delivery appointments require you to be home for delivery and provide your signature. The delivery is made with a semi-truck with lift gate services, and the shipment is dropped off at the curb. If you authorize the shipping company to leave the delivery without a signature, BBQGuys can’t be held responsible for damages that occur during delivery. As complicated as this process may seem, we’ve only scratched the surface here — please review our detailed guide to freight delivery so there are no surprises when a freight shipment heads your way.

For carriers that deliver without an appointment:

Carriers that deliver without an appointment don’t require you to be home or set up a delivery window, and you aren’t required to sign for the pallet(s). Instead of scheduling an appointment, arranging your schedule to be home for the delivery, and signing to confirm receipt, you can sit back and let your items come to you. If you’re home at the time of the drop-off, you can request the driver place your delivery in the garage; if you’re out of the house, the driver will leave it near the garage or doorstep.

$6.95 Flat-Rate Shipping

Anything under $49 ships at one low price. If your order increases, your shipping stays the same!

30-Day Returns

Return all new, unused, and unassembled items in their original packaging, and we'll give you a full refund minus the cost of the original AND return shipping.

No Restocking Fee

Most companies charge a restocking fee. We just don't do business that way.

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
